, sandy levin. interestingly enough, sandy and i actually share act. sometimes you hear the term, reagan democrats. it was from our county. you have two. you have two very divergent beliefs coming out of a county. but one thing that is a very commonality of think of a county like mccomb, is we have budgets. we pass budgets on time. we balance them. we just think you should have a budget. interestingly enough, just before i came here, before we had our vote series, i was doing something i call congress in the classroom where i was going to call it skipe, but it's the new technology as uvo. i talk to all these kids in my district, my part of the county, about things that are going on in congress. i was telling them about this particular piece of legislation that was going to come before the congress tomorrow and tell them that the senate had actually not passed a budget in almost four years. they said, how could that be? isn't there anything you can do to force that? i said, we're going to try tomorrow and it's unfortunate it has to come to that. whatever kind of budget the senate would pa

had a derailment because of it. we had record fires. we had record levels of damage from sandy, $70 billion. if we can't see the downside of spending that money and risking lives for all the changes that are taking place, to agriculture, to our communities, the ocean and so forth, we are ignoring what science is telling us. i will be a passionate advocate on this not based on ideology but based on facts and science. and i hope to sit with all of you and convince you that this $6 trillion market is worth millions of american jobs and we better go after it. >> to my good friend senator barrasso, wyoming is a producer state, new mexico is also a producer state and i found the same experience that senator kerry has talked about in massachusetts, in new mexico, the fastest growing sector these renewable jobs. so i think it's a big opportunity for us. we should be pursuing it. i agree with what he just said and i hope we can work with each other, because we should try to pull together and discuss the facts and really pursue this sector that is going to be so vital to the future and vital

, the disaster would be comparable to hurricane katrina or superstorm sandy -- losses of at least $100 billion and 40,000 jobs. i am going to do whatever i can to make sure that does not happen. my proposed plan is two tunnels 30 miles long and 40 feet wide, designed to improve the ecology of the delta, with almost 100 square miles of habitat restoration. yes, that is big but so is the problem. the london olympics lasted a short while and cost $14 billion, about the same cost as this project. but this project will serve california for hundreds of years. think about california'sinwhene future, no long term liability presents as great a danger to our wellbeing as the buildup of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. according to the latest report from the world bank, carbon dioxide emissions are the highest in 15 million years. at today's emissions rate, the planet could warm by more than 7 degrees fahrenheit by the end of the century, an event unknown in human experience. california is extremely vulnerable because of our mediterranean climate, long coastline and reliance o

in that the economy strengthened at the end, and he was very lucky with sandy, which probably help him in the very end. but if we had a strong candidate, we would've had a very strong election one with year -- one way or the other. the data mining they were able to do is quite remarkable. but if you run a conservative is a social democrat in this country and you have an even playing field, the social democrats will lose. >> i am the vice chairman of the college republicans at the catholic university of america. going off that last question, who do you think the republicans will pick for the nomination in 2016? and do you think we will win? this is being recorded, charles. so this prediction will come back to you in the future. >> well, some people have approached me.
